AN ORGANISATION which operates The Pyramids Centre has submitted its application for re-tender.

Southsea Community Leisure Limited (SCLL) hopes it will fend off competition from seven other companies and remain in charge.

SCLL had set up a petition so people can show their support – but it was told by Portsmouth City Council to remove it.

As previously reported in The News, the council’s legal team said rallying public support during the tender process wasn’t fair on the other firms.

SCLL chief executive Tim Herman said: ‘The board of directors are all voluntary non-executives drawn from the local community.

‘Our unique selling point is that SCLL will ensure The Pyramids is run and staffed by local people for the benefit of the local community.’
